Given that evolution is a fact and that the evidence for it is incontrovertible, I find it very difficult to understand how religious people, mostly Christians, can deny it. Can you enlighten me?

The Christian Perspective

Christians deny that life spontaneously erupted from nothingness into walking, breathing, car-designing, music-making, poetry creating creatures. The evolutionist requires that you and I belched into existence without intention, thought or design. As a Christian I am comfortable with the notion of faith, but it is truly a fantastical faith that asserts random interactions of atoms produced hearing, seeing, self-reproducing, intelligent creatures with self healing skin and a myriad of other features -- all of which can be powered by peanut butter and potato chips.

Dr. George Wald, evolutionist, Professor Emeritus of Biology at the University at Harvard, Nobel Prize winner in Biology writes
"When it comes to the origin of life on this earth, there are only two possibilities: creation or spontaneous generation (evolution). There is no third way. Spontaneous generation was disproved 100 years ago, but that leads us only to one other conclusion: that of supernatural creation. We cannot accept that on philosophical grounds (personal reasons); therefore, we choose to believe the impossible: that life arose spontaneously by chance."
